    Tree transplanted help

    I pulled this tree up from a jobsite of mine, it was growing in the gravel, and transplanted it in our garden for now, it looks it is dying, will it come back next spring or is it gone for good? I think it is a tulip poplar if I'm right, anyone know? Thanks

    RE: Tree transplanted help

    funonahonda, it does look like a Tulip tree. One of my favorites.

    When I've had to move non-dormant plants during June they always experience quite a bit of stress. Not only do you have the summer heat, but when I've dug out natural grown trees with hand tools it is more difficult on the tree than just plopping one out of a pot and into the ground.

    Keep the fella watered. Use your fingers to tell if the soil near the trunk is dry then water. I might error on the side of more water with the June transplant, but don't turn it into a swamp.

    RE: Tree transplanted help

    Hey man, if all the leaves fall off, keep it watered and just before spring next year cut the trunk about a third of the way down. When I lived in Cincy I dug up some Eastern Cottonwoods and took them to Knoxville on our property where we live now. Upon xplanting(in July) the leaves fell off and they looked dead. The next spring they came out and now they are about 40-60 feet tall. That was 21 years ago. Poplars, Aspens, and Cottonwoods are all related and kin to Magnolias. They are very hardy and tolerent in their native regions and even hard to kill sometimes. Good luck!

    I think Tulip Trees are related to Magnolias, but they are not poplars or directly related to them. The common colloquial name of "Tulip Poplar" is a misnomer. Good supporting evidence would be the flowers.

    Yup, Liriodendron tulipifera is not a poplar. So I guess his tree is gonna die.

    You never want to dig a tree up if it has leaves on it. All transplanting should be done after the frosts come in the fall or before the trees wake up in the spring.
    If you need another tuliptree the Arbor Day Foundation sells them on our site. We'll ship it this fall after the frosts, of course.
